Cant turn Nook Tablet back on after it goes to sleep being idle.

Hey guys I just got the Nook tablet and things have been great so far except today ive ran into a problem.

 

I set my nook down for a bit to make dinner and it went idle and then went to sleep .

 

Im supposed to be able to unlock/wake it up by pressing the N button then unlocking the nook. only when I press the N button.  nothing happens.  It doesnt wake up. Nor does pressing the power button work either.   The only way i have been able to  wake it up is to plug it into the charger and charge it.  while plugged in it "wakes" up like a reboot.   the battery reads 73 percent.  It went idle again and went to sleep. and I WAS able to wake it up with the N button after a short time.  But if it goes longer, it doesnt wake up at all again.

 

any ideas on what the problem could be?

 

thanks

Sounds like a bad battery to me.  I'd take it back to the store and see what they can do.

Re: Cant turn Nook Tablet back on after it goes to sleep being idle.

My Nook Color always had a tendency to do that. I hit the On/Off button to wake it instead of the "N". If I hit the "N" first, then it won't always open.
